With the health and safety of you, our guests, vendors, staff and volunteers our top priority, it has become clear we need to cancel MBO for this summer. Especially after the Governor of Oregon stated May 7th that “…all large gatherings, including sporting events, festivals and fairs, will remain off-limits through at least September…”.
Next summer we will ride again!! Mark your calendars now for July 16-18, 2021. In the meantime, plans will be put in place to mitigate health risks in the post pandemic world and ensure the health and safety of all attendees.
A full refund is available through Eventbrite, which MBO staff will be doing on May 18th. Please contact us prior if you are interested in donating some (or all) of your registration costs to our fund for Oakridge/Westfir trail organizations & the Oakridge Moose Lodge. For many locals, MBO is their biggest fundraiser of the season and it pains us to take this opportunity away. The trail groups build and maintain the amazing network of trails in Oakridge & Westfir, and the Oakridge Moose Lodge has been feeding us breakfast since the early days of MBO.
We will miss spending the celebration of MBO with you this summer and look forward to 2021. In the meantime, stay in touch through our Instagram page @mtbikeoregon or Mountain Bike Oregon on Facebook.
Stay safe and healthy and to those who are essential workers, we thank you for your service.

We will be refunding money for all items added on to your registration. We will not be shipping clothing items at this time.
Unfortunately, no. We are a small event and it is easier to keep things separate. We hope you will come ride with us again next year and will let you know when registration for 2021 opens.
Yes! You can donate your entire registration or a portion to our fund for the Oakridge Moose Lodge and Oakridge trail groups. We will divide what is donated up between the organizations, hopefully covering the funds they normally raise each year at MBO.
MBO includes many moving parts and we were starting to see the signs that the event we hoped to offer was not going to happen. In addition, on May 7th, the Governor of Oregon stated that “…all large gatherings, including sporting events, festivals and fairs, will remain off-limits through at least September…”. Due to these factors, it seemed prudent to release the air from the tube now.
